    Default Is this hutch big enough?

    For Grim and Smoo. It's long enough but is the height and width okay? One is not quite 2 foot.

    It's hard with the photo's and no measurements but grim looks as big as my flopsi and she'd need more height than that.

    Big.
    They're both dwarf lops weighing about 3kg each.
    I want a 6 foot hutch really that's 3 foot deep but I can't find any and to get one made is almost 300 so I'm still trying t get a bargain. A 7ft one is good too but almost as hard to find.

    The hutch is 7 x 2 foot deep , but only 22 inches tall

    For 3kg buns it really isnt big enough.

    With the size of the doors which drop down, your only other option for getting in an cleaning out is through the top. Depending on the height you put the hutch at either cleaning out or handling your buns could be trickie.

    I would think one of the normal good hutch makers would make a 5 x 3 for less than 300

    That's where I got the quote, so I'm just trying to find a bargain first.
